Both sides will be wanting to bounce back after defeats in their last match.
After losing their previous IPL fixtures in 2013, Kings XI Punjab and Pune Warriors India will be looking to get their season back on track when they face each other today.
SunRisers Hyderabad were the conquerors of both franchises after they dismissed four Pune batsmen in five balls on Wednesday, before going one better with four in four against Kings XI on Friday.
With the two sides collapsing in their previous outing there will be a point to prove in today’s clash.
Adam Gilchrist’s team will probably be the favourites as despite winning the same amount of matches as Pune, they look a more solid unit and can boast having all-time top run scorer Shaun Marsh back in the side.
For Angelo Mathews and his team the 2013 season looks like it may be an uphill struggle and anything better than last year’s bottom position will be a positive.
